Intro



Verse

    A              Em7
How long before I get in?

      G                        D
Before it starts, before I begin?

    A                 Em7
How long before you decide?

      G                        D
Before I know what it feels like?

      A             Em7 
Where to, where do I go?

                                D
If you never try, you'll never know,

    A                 Em7  
How long do I have to climb?

      G                             D
Up on the side of this mountain of mine?

Instrumental

Verse

     A                Em7
Look up, I look up at night

       G                             D
Planets are moving at the speed of light

      A             Em7
Climb up, up in the trees

         G                                  D
Every chance that you get is a chance you seize

    A                Em7
How long am I gonna stand

       G                       D
With my head stuck under the sand

     A                 Em7                    
I'll start before I can stop

       G                           D
Before I see things the right way up



Pre Chorus

 G        A 
  All that noise

               Bm 
  And all that sound 

 G          A            Bm
  All those places I got found

Chorus

   G                       Bm7 
And birds go flying at the speed of sound

   D                      G
To show you how it all began

                           Bm7
Birds came flying from the ground

             F#m                         G
If you could see it then you'd understand

Instrumental

Verse

 A                        Em7
Ideas that you'll never find

       G                           D 
All the inventors could never design

    A                      Em7
The buildings that you put up

      G                  D
Japan and China all lit up

  A                     Em7
A sign that I couldn't read

      G                     D
Or a light that I couldn't see

      A                    Em7
Some things you have to believe

        G                     D
Others are puzzles, puzzling me

Pre Chorus

 G         A
  All that noise

               Bm
  And all that sound

 G         A             Bm  
  All those places I got found

Chorus

    G                      Bm
And birds go flying at the speed of sound


   D                     G
To show you how it all began

                            Bm 
Birds came flying from the underground

            F#m                     G 
If you could see it then you'd understand

            F#m                     G
Ah, when you see it then you'd understand

Instrumental

D all along

Pre Chorus

 G          A                       Bm
  All those signs, I knew what they meant

                  E
  Some things you can't invent

 G        A                 Bm        E
  Some get made and some get sent, ooh

Chorus

    G                      Bm
And birds go flying at the speed of sound

   D                  G
To show you how it all began

                           Bm
Birds came flying from the underground

             F#m                    G
If you could see it then you'd understand

             F#m                    G                  
Ah, when you see it then you'll understand

Ending

G all along
